The DotMod DotBox is high-end vape device, recommended for intermediate to advanced users. Powered by dual 18650 vape batteries (sold separately) this device is capable of a 200W max output. Featuring a 510 connection and a variable wattage, this device is compatible with a range of tanks and rebuildable atomisers.
As you'd expect from DotMod a clean aesthetic is combined with high end touches like goldplated buttons and engraved designs. An OLED screen clearly displays battery life, output level and atomiser resistance, the two buttons under the screen are used to navigate the menu system.
The DotBox uses an advanced chipset, giving you access to a range of output modes that can be used to customise the performance of the device, to suit your style.
Variable Wattage (VW) allows you to increase and decrease the wattage output between 1-200W. This mode means you can match the power output to the resistance of your coils, while also helping you find that sweet spot between cloud and flavour production.
Temperature Control (TC) on the other hand, allows you to programme the output in Watts as well as a maximum temperature that your coils can reach. This stops your coils from running too hot and delivering a dry hit. It also means that you can effectively programme your perfect vape. Please note only certain coils types are compatible with this mode.
Variable Power Curve (VPC) works similarly to TC Mode. You can set a series of wattages levels that the DotBox will fire at sequentially. Again this lets you programme a vape pattern that's personal to you, whether that's a short powerful one or a long cool vape.
Bypass mode draws the maximum amperage from the battery, power is dictated by the charge of your batteries and the resistance of your coils. This mode is recommended only to advanced vapers who have a thorough knowledge of Ohm's Law and battery safety.
Overall, the DotBox is a high-end vape device that combines a bright aesthetic with advanced firmware, creating an advanced vape device.
Important information about sub ohm vaping:
This is a sub ohm vape device, it will provide enough power to support coils that register below 1.0 Ohm. These are advanced devices that will produce large amounts of vapour and are not recommended for new users. To get the most out of these devices, you should use an e-liquid that is 60% VG or higher.
These devices work at higher wattages, because of this we recommend that you use an e-liquid with a nicotine strength lower than 6mg. Featuring advanced modes, please ensure you consult your manual when setting up. Some sub ohm devices will use removable batteries, if this is the case you will need a knowledge of battery safety.

Pros are excellent build quality, magnetic door is solid, no button rattle, looks beautiful, minimalist design, hits hard and reads fairly accurate. The mod is surprisingly light weight and finishes are beautiful.
Cons are the buttons are a bit mushy, don't like the auto shutdown and isn't as comfortable to hold for long periods. This isn't really a con but the device isn't cheap and if I had to chose between this and a Lost Vape Paranormal (slightly cheaper) I'd favour the Paranormal.
Having used the Smok Alien, Smok Pro-Colour and Smok Mag, I wanted to try something different. I saw the dotMod DotBox 200w and decided to try it for myself.
The build quality is outstanding and the details are lovely, especially using this with a Petri standard tank it performs excellently. The whole set up looks really stylish and the flavour of the vapour that it produces is also lovely. I’m currently vaping around 20-30w with no spit-back and a really enjoyable flavour in the knowledge that I can vape at higher wattage. 10/10.

Been using this for over a month and it’s an absolute workhorse of a mod, easy to use, easy to set up and has all the features you’d expect from this price tag. Finish is second to none, thick paint, stunning gold touches and I’ve noticed no wear and tear.
Stunning mod, that has been my go to continually.
